Besides all the new students at
Saint Alary’s this year, there are
nine new faculty members. Not
all nine of these are completely
new, because three of them have
taught at Saint Mary’s before. We
want to welcome them all!
Phrst, there’s Miss Ann Arthur.
She is from Morehead City and
teaclies German and piano. Miss
Arthur is a graduate of
W.C.U.N.C. and the Eastman
School of Music.
Then there’s Miss Allie Bell, the
new alumnae secretary. Maybe
you’ve already run into her up in
Aliss Davis’ office. Aliss Bell calls
Pittsboro home. She’s a Saint
Mary’s girl, and like so many
S.M.S. lassies, she went to “dear
ole Carolina.”
Then there’s Airs. Evie Calla
han, of Raleigh, our housekeeper.
We really couldn’t get along with
out her!
Another Saint Mai’y’s graduate
is Airs. Charles Goodno. Mrs.
Goodno, Avhose home is in Raleigh,
(See P. 4, Col. 1)
The staff of the BELLES ex
tends a sincere welcome to Dr.
Richard G. Stone, our new presi
dent. For the whole student body,
they wish him and his family suc
cess and happiness in the coming
.vear at Saint Mary’s.

The BELLES lias introduced our
new president to tbe students, now
we want to introduce to you our
“first lady,” Mrs. Richard G. Stone.
We caught up with Mrs. Stone out
side tbe dining room and, after trip
ping past Holt and the infirmary
and over Susie, tbe blue Persian pat
who has become a campus fa^mrite,
we found ourselves settled in one
corner of a red sofa in the Stone’s
pleasant living room, while Mrs.
Stone smilingly told us her life
Marye Grove Stone was born in
1912 in Roanoke, Virginia, where
her parents. Dr. and Mrs. Burnam
Grove, are still living. She was
graduated from Converse College in
1934, with a major in history, in
1935 she married hei- history pro
fessor, Dr. Richard G. Stone. They
have a son, Richard, who is nine,
and who takes a great interest in
Saint Mary’s.
Although Mrs. Stone likes to
travel and has always wanted to go
to Europe, she likes least to move
from place to place. She loves read
ing, antiques, and old pictures, and
is particularly enioymg fixing her
home. In answer to the housewifely
question of cooking, Mrs. Stone said,
“I like to cook, but not three meals
a day!”
Mrs. Stone also likes teaching, for
which she was prepared while in
college, but which she has never
really done.
Mrs. Stone has one sister, and two
brothers—one of whom is twenty
and who, she said to your intervieiv-
er’s delight, wants to visit Saint
Mary’s for about three hundred rea
Mrs. Stone likes being here at
Saint Mary’s very much, for, as she
says, “It’s good to be back on a col
lege campus again. And too. Saint
Mary’s doesn’t have to create an at
mosphere of tradition, it’s already
here.” Mrs. Stone has already had
a taste of our dormit^ory J.ife, for
the Stones lived
two weeks after
this summer.
But now she is finally on the road
to being settled, and both she and
Dr. Stone want Saint Mary’s girls
to feel free to visit them often. And,
as we looked about the Stone’s lovely
home, we knew how you would all
feel, so . . . line forms after me,
in Holt Hall for
arriving at school
